Well Martin's dream has become Rodney's worst nightmare
Can't walk the streets to them we are fair game
Our life don't mean a thing

Like a king, like a king, like a king
Rodney King, Rodney King, Rodney King
Like a king, like a king, like a king
How I wish you could help us Dr. King

Make sure it's filmed, shown on national TV
They'll have no mercy a legal lynch mob
Like the days strung up from the tree
The L.A.P.D.

Like a king, like a king, like a king
Rodney King, Rodney King, Rodney King
Like a king, like a king, like a king
How I wish you could help us Dr. King?

So, if you catch yourself
Thinking it has changed for the best
You better second guess 'coz Martin's dream
Has become Rodney's worst nightmare

Like a king, like a king, like a king
Rodney King, Rodney King, Rodney King
Like a king, like a king, like a king
How I wish you could help us Dr. King?
Like a king, like a king, like a king

Like a king, like a king, like a king
Like a king, like a king, like a king
Like a king, like a king, like a king

When we will look to the past
Look to the past to learn?
Bye, bye we must go to see the king
Bye, bye we must go to face the king
